The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles and Jacksonville State Gamecocks face off on Sunday in a college football stadium at Burgess Snow Field.
Tbe Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles have played one game so far this spring season and it was a late comeback that allowed them to come away with a victory. Heading into the 4th quarter, Tennessee Tech was down 14-10, but the Golden Eagles scored 17 points to come away with the 27-21 victory. At quarterback, Tennessee Tech is led by Bailey Fisher at quarterback and on the season he has thrown for 106 yards and a touchdown. Running back David Gist also had a big game rushing for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Tennessee Tech finally seemed to get their rhythm late in the game, and they need to build on that in this game. If Tennessee Tech’s offense struggles early again, that could be playing with fire.
On the other side of this matchup is the Jacksonville State Gamecocks who played four games during the fall season and they went 3-1. The only loss during that stretch was against Florida State, and one of their three wins was against Florida International. In that last game the defense locked down giving up only 10 points and that led to the victory. Zerrick Cooper is expected to be under center for this team and he had a big fall season including against North Alabama where he threw for 244 yards and one touchdown. This is an offense that is strong but when it comes down to it, a lot of the time it’s the defense that ends up stepping up and being the difference.
Jacksonville State was impressive during the fall season and they are going to find success again in this game. Jacksonville State's defense is going to be the difference as Tennessee Tech struggles to score. Back Jacksonville State.
